I am 65, retired from the audio business, very much still involved in audio, music listening, and the associated equipment. Three years ago, I sold my record collection of 6000 lps, my 2 high end vinyl playback systems, and went through a time of mourning. Mostly from giving up much music in my collection. Admittedly, vinyl sounds wonderful. There are many differences in vinyl playback gear, and I would not have been happy with a Pioneer PL 1000, not because it is a bad table, as it is good, but I had better, much better. The problem I had, it took me 4-5 minutes to get the record, remove the lid off the table, remove the record from it’s sleeve, clean the record, place it on the platter, clamp the record on the platter ( yes, I believe in clamping ), turn the table on, lower the arm / cartridge on the lp, and go flying to my listening seat. Not to mention getting the volume correct, for that particular recording, and my listening level mood.With all of that being done, I could not stand hearing the noise, rumble, clicks and pops, of the stylus, riding in the grooves, and it was simply inherent in the lp playing process. The higher definition a system is, the greater you hear all of this, as well as superior musical playback. And believe me, it was not my playback equipment. I just found myself listening less and less to vinyl. I would never suggest to anyone not to get into vinyl, as it still is a wonderful music playback medium, but, I wanted to give you another side to it. This, btw, was much more apparent on music that had many low passages of music. Good luck with your endeavors. Enjoy ! MrD.
